Hi all, fairly new here on the new forum, was on the old for a bit but have been away for a while.
I'm 40 and have been dealing with sciatica and back pain for about 3 to 3 1/2 years now. Sciatica was caused by an annular L5-S1 tear and took a couple MRIs to diagnose. Back pain is from facet joint syndrome L3-L4-L5. I've had several injections, the latest was a set of MBB injections to confirm my eligibility for RF Rhizotomy, which is scheduled.
I worked in public safety for 20 years, primary as a 911 dispatcher but also as a volunteer firefighter & paramedic. I've not been able to do the FF/medic work in some time now and miss it a lot! I left dispatching to pursue my IT interests. I'm also a part time professional photographer.
Nice to make everyone's acquaintance.
